I don't even know what to say anymore. It was bad when the
Texans beat Seattle like Seattle was a high school team.
However, when one of the worst teams in NFL history is doing the
same thing, something is just wrong.
To their credit,
the Seahawks were up around the half. Although they were up by
four points against a Tampa Bay team that's being considered in many
circles as worse than the zero win team from their expansion years.
However, half time is not the end of a game, and that left Tampa Bay
room to completely blow away the Seahawks. I mean the Bucs
finished with 24 points and Seattle never got above seven.
I think only two
things even need to be said about this game. The first being
that the first half was one of the most pathetic first halves to a
football game I've ever seen. Between fumbles and
interceptions, it was bad. Then you get a botched snap on a
field goal attempt by Seattle, and the Bucs missing one easy field
goal attempt by going about a mile right of the uprights. It
was like watching all of the fans who say "I could do better than
these two teams" making two teams and trying to show how it's done.
If it weren't for being a Seahawks fan, I would have loved watching
the first half since it could become a sports blooper reel for the
On the other hand,
at least this helps to bring the Seahawks a higher draft pick.
Right now, assuming Seattle gets a GM with any intelligence, a high
draft pick would be a great thing. Of course, no matter how
highly you can go in the draft, when you need a whole new team, it
doesn't mean too much. The Seahawks, assuming the next GM
wants to rebuild instead of trying to throw a patch on this pile of
ruin, are a few years away from being contenders again. This
is going to be the team that will rival the Rams for the next few
years. Meanwhile, the division will continue to be a
(pathetic) battle for supremacy between Arizona and San Francisco.
Anyway, I don't
have much else to say for now on sports. I feel sad and
depressed about the NFL, and Seattle has nothing else until training
starts up for MLS or MLB.
On a different
note, I finished the main game of Nostalgia. It's a great game
to play, but I don't think I'd ever want to play through another
time. The game is too tedious for a second attempt, but very
fun for a single time through. All I have left is the bonus
dungeons (Tower of the Moon and the Hanging Gardens). I doubt
I'll go through these two dungeons. It's not that I don't want
to. However, the enemies increase in challenge way too sharply
between the final dungeon of the normal game and these bonus
dungeons. When you add in how you cannot go back to the last
area or two of the normal game, you don't have a good place to
grind, but you sure need to grind to face these dungeons from hell.
I mean a normal random encounter in the Tower of the Moon is about
ten times harder than the final boss of the game. I just don't
have the patience to grind enough to face this threat.
without the bonus dungeons or any replayability, I love Nostalgia.
It took about 25 hours to beat and it was a fun 25 hours with almost
no dull parts. As an old school RPG fan, this is the best game
I can recommend from the genre for quite some time. It's not
as fun as the remakes of FF4 or DQ5 on the DS, but it comes damn
